ORDER NOW FOR AN EXCELLENT PAPER FROM HEALTH CARE PAPER GURUS :Case-study Assignment: Nursing problems.

This week we learned how research designs are different and help us to objectively study nursing problems; the key is to decide which type of research and design will serve the purpose or intent to find a solution. After completing Week 4 readings and lesson, answer the following:

Reflect on your learning about Quantitative and Qualitative research; share two ways that helped you understand how they are different.
Choose one category of study design that you found interesting and describe; include what you learned about the design and how you believe it can help study nursing problems.
Refer back to your clinical nursing priority problem and evidence you located for your week 3 assignment (CAUTI’s) :
• The nursing-evidenced practice (NEBP) committee has requested for you to make a recommendation to the team: Describe the type of research and the design that you believe would be the best way to study your problem. Discuss your rationale. (the problem you will need to discuss relates to Catheter Acquired Urinary Tract Infections)
****please include 2 APA citations, and no fewer than 3 paragraphs, please*****

LESSON AND READING TO ASSIST WITH ANSWERING QUESTION:

An easy way to think about the word research design is to think about a map. When planning a trip, it is always a good idea to review the ways or routes to arrive at the correct destination. Like any map, there are generally two to three suggested routes outlining the ways to travel to get to where you want to go. With research designs, there are different ways to choose the best plan/way on how to accomplish/achieve an answer to the problem/issue. Just like maps, there may or may not be the best route; rather, some suggested routes for your journey. The key is to choose your best way ahead of time and then plan your journey following the way accordingly. Same with research designs—you have options.

The research design flows from the research question, the purpose/intent, and outlines the plan for the study that will answer the research question. The design identifies the major components of the study. It is important to remember that there is no one best design for a research study. For example, a quantitative experimental design is considered the gold standard and may produce a stronger level of evidence, but it may be a poor fit for the purpose of the study. Therefore, considerations of design selection include:

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
